	There is a big difference between the Dominican Merengue and the
Haitian Kompa.  The sounds and the beats of the Conga drums and the bass are
completely different.

	I hope my explanation helps.  My Kompa band, SergioCompaBand, will
be performing at Nouveau Manoir in Queens on June 9th, 207-13-15 Jamaica
Ave., telephone (718) 464-4400.
